  • Authentication

    v4 v5  
    2525When using the "{{{file_auth}}}" module, one must specify the extra command line argument "{{{--password-file=FILENAME}}}" to point to the authentication data.
    2626
    27 This file must contain one user per line using the format:
     27When this file is used without the [/wiki/ProxyServer Proxy Server], one can simply place the password to use directly in that file.

     30== File Authentication with the [/wiki/ProxyServer Proxy Server] ==
     31
     32When used with the proxy server, the password file should contain one user per line using the format:
    2833{{{
    2934USERNAME|PASSWORD|UID|GID|SESSION_URI|ENV_VARS|SESSION_OPTIONS
    3035}}}
     36
    3137Details:
     38* {{{USERNAME}}} and {{{PASSWORD}}} are used for authentication
     39* {{{UID}}} and {{{GID}}} are used for the new proxy process (and can be set to {{{nobody}}})
    3240* {{{SESSION_URI}}} is the usual xpra connection string of the actual target session, ie:
    3341{{{
     
    4048* {{{ENV_VARS}}} is an optional attribute which can contain ";" separated name-value pairs which will affect the environment of the new process spawned after authentication.
    4149* {{{SESSION_OPTIONS}}} is an optional attribute which can contain ";" separated name-value pairs which will override the client's connection settings and apply to the connection between the proxy and the real server only.

    44 Note: for backwards compatibility, the {{{file_auth}}} module also supports a single password on a single line in the password file. (this is deprecated)
